Commercial Real Estate Financing Pros Evaluate Lending Climate

CCIM Live! event features financing expert insights and key networking opportunities.

What are the best bets to find financing for commercial real estate transactions in the current market? How do historical trends in job growth, rail traffic, housing, and commercial real estate fundamentals influence banks lending decisions today? The CCIM Institute, the world's largest network of commercial real estate professionals, will feature three of the industry's financing thought leaders during a panel session at the 2013 CCIM Live! conference in Denver Oct. 25-26. Headquartered in Chicago, the Institute confers the CCIM designation, commercial real estate's global standard for professionals.

The panel session “Evaluating Today's Financing Options” will feature moderator Maryann Mize, CCIM, senior vice president/credit officer for Charlotte State Bank in Port Charlotte, Fla., and CCIM instructor, who will lead a discussion on strategies for procuring financing in the current market conditions. Panelists Brian Bailey, senior financial policy analyst of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta's supervision and regulations division, and John G. Manganiello, senior vice president and market executive with Bank of America Merrill Lynch's business banking team, will also share insights on the effects commercial mortgage-backed securities, capitalization rates, lending trends, and mortgage delinquencies have on the broader commercial real estate market.

Industry pros who attend the conference will have an opportunity to participate in a one-hour Speed Networking Session designed to put decision makers together to make deals happen. The Denver CCIM Chapter will also host a unique chapter networking event for all CCIM Live! attendees.
